I enjoyed going to this hidden gem. As a visitor to the DFW area I wanted to find some pit BBQ that this area is known for. As a person who is not a brisket fan, I loved theirs! Great service and lots of options!

This place is what I expect when I go for good smoked BBQ. The set up is kind of like Chipotle, where you go down the assembly line selecting your choice of items. It starts with the smoked bbq meats outside, then works inside for breads, sides and the cashier. The beans are free next to the drink station. There... More

Good place for a Family or Friends dinner, very good smoked barbecue meat for a reasonable price. Haven't tried any sides, was a solo meat dinner.

Everything here is delicious. Don't miss the poppers! You will crave this place after you have eaten here.

You stand in line and pick your meat right of the pits. The smoke from the pits was overwhelming while we waited through the line. The restaurant was very loud with picnic style tables and benches. The food was typical buffet style food. We didn't care for their BBQ sauce.

All of the meats are fantastic. I'm not crazy about most of the sides. We live in the area so I most often pick up a variety and take it home and serve my own side dishes. However, the roasted corn is great.

This is a very popular place for those from out of town especially with a business expense account. Be prepared to stand outside by the hot pits to order your food (and don't wear anything that you don't want sweat or smell smoky), eat off of paper, and sit with no seat backs. Order is tricky by weight so you... More

I was in Dallas for work and almost everyone asked recommended this place for great BBQ. Apparently, it's always busy and there's a wait but it's definitely worth it. If you're in town and have the time and desire, you have to check this place out.

So it's true, I'm a yankee, but boy is this some good BBQ. Huge grill just smoking as soon as you walk up. Tell them how much to hack off and they slap it on a tray, weigh it, you pick your sides then dig in. Alot of fun and tender, flavorful meat. And loved the shrimp poppers for sure!!... More
